  • By lewisda on 11 July 2017

    This is a great resource on threat modelling. I shows how to threat model in a visual way that can be easily interpreted. It also has links to some playing cards to help indentift threats.

    One, if the THE best book on threat modelling I have read.

  • By Edward Kenworthy on 26 December 2015

    I'm working on a large programme where, and this isn't unusual across industry, the information security team haven't performed a risk assessment. So to fill in the gaps and to justify the controls-led approach I've had to take I've conducted a threat assessment. This book was really helpful in getting a first draft produced quickly enough to still be useful.
